The list of works that re-write or extend Austen’s work is long and varied, from the 19th-century novels of Thomas Lister to the current products of the Austen Project, from fantasies about the Darcys’ marriage to Austen in the world of vampires and zombies. In this talk, Dr. Wallace examines two examples of texts that re-work Sense and Sensibility: Joanna Trollope’s contribution to the Austen Project and Ben H. Winters’s mash-up with sea-monsters. How do these authors re-present Austen’s writing, and to what extent do these re-workings become novels in their own right?
